ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sundad, comprised of father and son guitarists, John Eurell Sr. and John Jr., and percussionist Chet Soares, is making their name as one of a new class of acoustic bands whose compositions, recordings, and live performances are filled with eclectic rhythms, harmonies, and chord changes. The original repertoire consists of mostly finger-style acoustic guitar instrumentals that have been described as "New Age, World Fusion" and Jam-Band music. The group is based in Conn. and Westchester County, NY.

Recently nominated by NAR (NewAgeReporter.com) for 2005 "Best New Artist" and "Best Instrumental Album - Acoustic", their CD, Journey To Eternity, debuted at #3 on the New Age Reporter's Top 100 New Age/Ambient/World Radio/Internet Airwaves Chart (August 2005), was #4 in Sept, has been on the Top 100 chart since being released, and is #23 in the Top 100 chart for all of 2005. The CD has aired across the U.S. on over 180 public radio stations and internationally in Spain, Belarus, Canada, Romania, Australia and Japan; and also made the Top Twenty Most Played Albums over 110 times on US radio shows, on LoveFM in Fukuoka, Japan, on Radio Mir in Minsk, Belarus, on Delta RFI (Radio France International) in Bucharest, on Galaxie CBC in Canada, and on Radio Despi in Spain.

XM Satellite Radio featured the album on its "The Best Music this week on XM" listing for the week of August 22-28, 2005. Tracks have aired on the nationally syndicated "Echoes" radio show and are in rotation on "Galaxie", Canada’s most widely distributed digital audio network, a commercial division of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

"Open Sesame", the first track on the CD, was featured on NPR's "All Songs Considered: Open Mic" where it garnered the highest listener review rating among the eight songs featured. Reviewers on GarageBand.com have voted the track as All-Time Best Guitars in the World Fusion category.

Maria of The Moonlight Stream on BostonPete.com says: "Sundad creates World Fusion and New Age music -- intricate rhythms and beautiful guitar harmonies that capture your heart and soul."

Love its many rhythms, sounds and moods! Can't play it often enough!
"Journey to Eternity" is a journey of many moods, sounds and rhythms: it captures me from its first track and fascinates me to the last one. "Open Sesame" captivated me from its first notes. I am also pulled into "The Endless Wind" with its extraordinary sounds and I am eager to feel what's next. "Bird Man" evolved such a crescendo that I dance around my apartment! Every track touches me!!! The intricacies of the guitar playing is enthralling and hypnotic. The jazz tone of "Bit of Blue" created a whole different and alluring mood. I can't select one as my favorite because each is appealing in a different way. When any track is over, I'm so eager to then move to the next moods and sounds.It is seductive! I have had the CD for two weeks, and I play it over and over again. It relaxes me; it excites me and it make me feel more alive. I can't wait until Sundad has its concert!!

Sundad's release is the perfect melodic/percussive "World Fusion Age" CD.
I love melodic/rhythmic instrumentals that combine earthy, ringing acoustic guitar tones mixed in with a healthy dose of hand percussion - a real bonus is if the musicians are up to the task and Sundad doesn’t disappoint one bit. “Journey to Eternity” nails it for me, in spades ... and I just can't seem to get their tunes out of my CD player. "New Age"? Nah, not really - it's more like "World Fusion Age", where Middle East rhythms support fluid guitar fingerpicking and inventive chord changes. Two thumbs up for Sundad!
